Item: Transcending Lives Campaign
Since it first opened in 2008, the SOMC inpatient Hospice Center has
operated on the idea that expectations for end-of-life care should not
be met - instead they should be transcended. That simple philosophy is
what led us to build a stand - alone hospice facility that has touched
the lives of more than 5,000 patients. And it's the same philosophy
that in now driving us to renovate and expand that facility.
SOMC's Transcending Lives campaign is a campaign to raise $3 Million
to renovate the existing hospice facility while adding four new
patient rooms, another large common gathering area, a meditation room
and new restroom facilities as well as an upgraded kitchen and support
areas. The rapid growth of SOMC Hospice makes these improvements a
necessity. SOMC Hospice often operates at full-capacity; in fact,
patients occasionally have to be admitted to the Main Campus until
rooms become available.
With your help, however SOMC can meet the growing demand for hospice
care and demonstrate its commitment to these patients and their families.
If you're interested in making a larger contribution that what's

give at least $1,000 or more will have their name featured on the
donor wall. If you would like to learn more about SOMC's Transcending
